Adult Fiction CAMPBEL
Summary: For the first time ever, the pioneering autobiographical comics of master cartoonist Eddie Campbell (FROM HELL) are collected in a single volume! Brilliantly observed and profoundly expressed, the ALEC stories present a version of Eddie's own life, filtered through the alter ego of "Alec MacGarry." Over many years, we witness Alec's (and Eddie's) progression "from beer to wine" -- wild nights at the pub, existential despair, the hunt for love, the quest for art, becoming a "responsible breadwinner," feeling lost at his own movie premiere, and much more! Eddie's outlandish fantasies and metafictional tricks convert life into art, while staying fully grounded in his own absurdity. At every point, the author's uncanny eye for irony and wry self-awareness makes even the smallest occasion into an opportunity for wit and wisdom. Quite simply, ALEC is a masterpiece of visual autobiography. This LIFE-SIZE OMNIBUS edition of ALEC includes all the stories from THE KING CANUTE CROWD, THREE PIECE SUIT, HOW TO BE AN ARTIST, and AFTER THE SNOOTER, as well as the very early out-of-print ALEC stories and a staggering amount of bonus material.
